I personally would prefer NO line breaks, as comparing the diffs after
would be much easier (otherwise a little change at the beginning of a
long text changes all line breaks for several following lines, which
makes it error-prone to observe changes at the end of the long text)

If you disagree and want automatic line breaks, which width do you want?
